Sample Answer
Group activities are not limited to friends or family, they can also be done with strangers. I happen  to experience this  strange, yet astonishing exposure with a group of strangers.
I had been planning to visit Manali during winters from a very long time but none of my friends or family members showed any interest. I was thrilled to bits after getting to know about the snowfall in Manali this year.  I couldn’t abstain myself from witnessing the pristine snow-covered mountains. So, I planned to go on a solo trip to Manali. I was surfing the internet to find the perfect travel agency who could guide me for my trip. While surfing the internet. I came across a website named WanderOn  wherein a group of strangers travel together. I was fascinated by this idea, but at the same time sceptic too. To get this exposure, I booked my trip with WanderOn. The trip began from Delhi. It was an overnight journey from Delhi to Manali by a bus. I was awestruck to see the scenic views of the great Himalayas from the dormer of the bus. We arrived at our  hotel at around two in the afternoon. We were allotted our rooms in a three star hotel which was in the heart of the town. After our lunch and relaxation, we headed towards the activities of Day 1 in Manali. We started by local sightseeing and visited the Hadimba Temple, a  16th century old  temple dedicated to Goddess Hadimba , wife of Bhima from the Indian epic Mahabharata. After visiting the temple, we headed towards Manali nature Park. Later in the day, we visited the famous Mall Road, a lively street lined with numerous shops, restaurants, and cafes. Towards the end of the day, that group of strangers who did not know each other became great friends.
On the second day, we visited the Solang Valley, a famous tourist harbor known for its dazzling  views  and thrilling activities, such as paragliding, bungee jumping and skiing. We spent the whole day indulging in these activities.
On the last day, we packed up our gear and said goodbye to the exquisite place. We all promised each other  to meet again. Overall, it was an outstanding experience. And I would definitely try to visit some other place with a group of strangers.
I never thought this small decision would make such a great impact in my life. That trip turned out to be a memorable one.
